Slightly Less Crazy

Firecodes will move the Cameron Crazies a few feet farther back from the court in Durham. Boo.

Some great video footage from the Raptors "war room" during this past summer's NBA Draft. Newly hired GM Brian Colangelo calls around and tries to find out what's going on with free-fallin' Marcus Williams. The best part? Before calling Danny Ainge, he says, "Get Danny up in Boston on the phone.He’ll tell me." Yeah right. Danny was busy trading for Rajon Rondo, chump.

Is David Beckham done? Maybe he'll be playing for MLS sooner than we thought.

Awesome.

On a GM note...I don't know why this popped into my head, but the other day I remembered a quote from Kings all-purpose guy Jerry Reynolds, who used to be the team's GM. I liked it so much I cut it out (yeah, it was a long time ago, when people read print newspapers).

Jerry Krause was trying to trade Stacy King to the Kings. Reynolds wasn't interested.

"But he has three rings," insisted Krause.

"So does your trainer," replied Reynolds.

Check this: I Googled Krause's name, just in case I had the spelling wrong. Check the first line from a paragraph from Wikipedia:

"Krause was born in 1938 and grew up very portly and unathletic, and never played basketball or any sport."

How flattering!
